I GOT HIT ON! AND HERE'S WHAT I DID...

8/11/2018
Ya! You read that right! I got hit on. And I had no idea what to do with it. Having someone hit on me was so weird. That experience hasn’t been in my reality for some time. I was super surprised. And even more important, I didn’t like how I reacted. I looked at him with a scowl! I really crinkled up my brow and gave him a good scowl. As if he’d done something wrong! But why? Why did I look at him in such a weird way when he was actually trying to pay me a compliment? I didn’t know how to act...

COULD YOU SPEAK UP, PLEASE?

8/6/2018
“I avoid confrontation like the plague!” Ever made that statement? So many of us are challenged when it comes to speaking up for ourselves. For most of us, it doesn’t come naturally. We either do it or we don’t. And for those of us who have struggled or are struggling, it can create all sorts of physical and emotional turmoil. Let’s dig into why it might be so hard to say what we need to say. Speaking up for ourselves means we feel worthy. And if we’re not speaking up, perhaps we don’t feel...

I GOTTA BE ME

7/30/2018
Last week’s blog and video was all about self care and the opportunities that show up for us everyday. Several weeks ago, I had a situation present itself to really practice what I preach. I arranged to share a room at a business conference with a lady who I knew only from our online meetings. We hadn’t met in person. When we met I immediately realized our energies were different. They were actually kinda crashing and bumping against each other. I wasn’t looking at it from the point of...

I'M BEING SELFISH TODAY!

7/24/2018
When I decided to make Self-Care this week's topic I thought...blah blah blah. Who wants to listen to self care? Then I let go of that ridiculous voice and got on with the task at hand… thinking about how self-care should be all consuming! And realizing that I needed to hear this just as much as you do. As I started tapping into the ways we take care of ourselves, I realized how it actually happens all day long, not just when we think about a “Spa Day.” Self-Care is how we move through our...

I'VE BEEN HIDING FROM YOU

7/17/2018
I’ve been hiding something from you… and I didn’t even know it. For as long as I can remember I’ve had a happy, energetic, free-flowing, bubbly personality. Guess what?! I’ve been using my big personality as a defense mechanism to keep you at a distance. Bet you weren’t expecting that one, were you?! Me neither. My business coach dropped that bomb on me and it’s taken me weeks to sit with it. And since then I’ve kinda had a personality crisis! If I wasn’t a happy energetic person then who...

BOUNDARIES

7/9/2018
What is a boundary anyway? Why do we even need them? According to my Dictionary app, a boundary is something that indicates bounds or limits; a limiting or bounding line. Did you know creating boundaries is one of the most healthy acts of self love you can do for yourself? One of the reasons we create boundaries is to feel safe. When we need to have a tricky conversation with our partners, with our children, with a co-worker, with our boss, having boundaries in place as to what can or cannot...

ON WINNING THE LOTTERY!

7/2/2018
Sounds pretty lofty doesn’t it?! Winning the lottery. Who am I to think I can manifest an enormous thing like that?! What came up for you when I said this? Really?! What came up? What chatter came up? Do you have judgement about me having this desire? Maybe you have the same desire. Here’s where it might get tricky. In order for us to draw this or any seemingly outlandish dream into our life we have to really know and believe it’s for us. And I don’t mean there are a select few this dream is...

"IT'S JUST YOUR IMAGINATION" YOU DON'T REALLY KNOW WHAT YOUR TALKING ABOUT

4/17/2018
Did you grow up in a war zone? Were your parents from Iraq then immigrate to Israel? Have you moved your family back and forth to Israel 3 times? My guest today has experienced all this and more. Revital Shiri-Horowitz is an extraordinary woman with an extraordinary life to share. She’s written 3 books earning several awards. Today we talk about her childhood of growing up in Israel, running to bomb shelters in the middle of the night, serving in the Israeli Defence Force, moving to London,...

ARE YOU AN ABSOLUTIST?! CAN THAT CHANGE?

4/10/2018
My sister Sarah used this phrase while I was interviewing her...absolutist. It means exactly what it says: there is no room for gray, it’s either black or white. My sister has been a self-proclaimed absolutist for a long time and is now declaring herself cured from the judgment of it all. Today’s podcast and video interview is about sisterhood, judgement, control issues, growing up, and more. When the topic came up over Christmas about eating vegan or vegetarian or omnivore or pescitarian, I...

GODDESS ENERGY AND WHAT I LEARNED FROM MY FOUR MONTH OLD NEPHEW

4/3/2018
I started in Santa Cruz, CA at a Women’s Leadership Conference. It was the type of sisterhood connection I love to submerge myself in to. I felt deep connections with women I’d never even met. There was so much learning and intensity that after the first day I felt like I had a hangover and I hadn’t even drank. Morning two as my girlfriend and I headed out of our hotel room I put on my sunglasses, even though it was cloudy and overcast. I didn’t want to engage with anyone yet. I still needed...

RACIAL BIAS, HOW IS IT SHOWING UP IN YOUR WORLD?

3/27/2018
“White privilege is not necessarily about being white. It has nothing to do with the color of your skin. It’s about the fact that there is a power structure in place and has been for generations that affords certain people the luxury of never having to think about what they look like in terms of how they are treated by others. But for another part of the population it is inescapable to know that how you look and are perceived by others determines how you are treated. This is white...

GENDER IDENTITY PART 2, EXPLORING THIS TOPIC FURTHER

3/20/2018
In today’s show I continue my conversation with Danny Neifert on Gender Identity. In this second part of our two part series we dive into the basic moving parts of us as human beings. If you missed part one of this series check it out here. We’re all born in the physical skin of either a male or female body. Yet it’s often discombobulating if we realize the shell we’re born into isn’t the person that’s on the inside. When we identify with the gender type we’re born into it categorically easy...

GENDER IDENTITY PART 1

3/13/2018
I've known Danny for over 4 years. When I first met her at our mutual yoga studio in Santa Barbara, CA I knew she had two grown children and was coming off a breakup. As time went on I discovered she was dating one of the female instructors and began to wonder how someone shifts from being attracted to males to being attracted to females and visa versa. I had no judgement around it, I was coming more from the place of curiosity and wonderment. Several years have passed and I ran into Danny...

WOMEN! USE YOUR INTUTION! FOLLOW YOUR INNER GUIDANCE

2/12/2018
Studies have shown that although both men and women have the capacity to use their intuition, women's brains are hardwired for it. That's right ladies! We can claim that inner voice, that gut instinct, that "feeling" we just have. But here's the thing, even though we have such a strong capacity for intuition we've almost forgotten how to let it lead us. And I mean really let it lead us through life. We haven't exactly been celebrated for our ability to "just know". Our ability to be...

SURRENDER THE OUTCOME; LETTING GO OF CONTROL

2/6/2018
UGH! Just as soon as I typed the words in the title "Letting go of Control" I had a shiver. Letting Go and Surrendering is an ongoing practice for me. Just like yoga, I have to practice it frequently for my body to have the muscle memory to do it. And for me to continue to grow. I find myself coming from a place of fear when I think about surrender. The "What if" place. What if I surrender, then what? If I surrender how do I know it's going to go the way I want it to go? Sometimes it's a...

FOR WOMEN ONLY! REVISITING PERI AND MENOPAUSE....'CAUSE I LOVE IT!

1/31/2018
I recorded this episode months ago and today I'm revisiting. It's ringing true for me on many levels; especially the shift of wanting to be out in the world doing my thing! I still have my youngest child at home. And although he's 17, he still requires and deserves my love and attention and interaction. The part of me that is shifting and wanting to get my message out in the world wants to ignore his wants and needs and hole up in my office( bedroom!) and work, work, work! Maybe I should go...

THE PRACTICE OF THE PRESENT MOMENT II

1/15/2018
Today we're continuing our discussion on being in the present moment. What does it mean to be in the present moment? We're starting with the ways in which we check out of the present moment. What are our vices that allow us to not show up in the moment. Staying in the present moment means being willing to feel uncomfortable. It means being willing to feel what comes up and being willing to dig deeper into the feelings. If we’re feeling uncomfortable we get to ask ourselves why. Why do I feel...

THE PRACTICE OF THE PRESENT MOMENT

1/15/2018
Being in the present moment....do we really know how to do it? Do we really know how to connect to ourselves and others in the real, right now, present moment? I'm learning this year. It's one of my intentions for 2018. To practice more of being in the present moment. To have intentionality. I've realized I'm mostly in the future moments rather than being in the present moment. I like to plan. So I find myself in the planning piece rather than being in what needs to be done for the event to...

GRIZZLY BEARS, JUSTIN BIEBER AND THE BEASTY BOYS

1/8/2018
This year I wanted to be specifically intentional in creating a New Year. Years past I've kinda participated in making my year an intentional one. I've kinda set an intention, or made a New Year Resolution, or verbalized what I wanted to happen in the year. And some years I haven't really thought about it at all. But this year I wanted to be fully present and fully participate in the creation of what the year looks like for me. I wanted to make sure I was on the same page with the Universe...
